    AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Natick, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Natick, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Genesco in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very easy, sat down and spoke about my background before the District Sales Manager went into the details and benefits of the company. Everything seemed to be going well until I said the lowest I would go in salary would be 35, 000, seemed like the DM was hit by a brick. I thought that based on my experience, 35,000 was reasonable. Rather than telling me she couldn't do it, the DM seemed to feel my time was worthless, by stringing me on for two weeks (Having me take stupid assesments and what not), before saying the best she could do was 29,000...horrible....
